Poverty and Income Inequality in Scotland 2017-20

The report includes statistics on child poverty, pensioner poverty, poverty for equality groups, and income inequality. These estimates are used to monitor progress in reducing poverty and income inequality.

The latest estimates are from the period between April 2017 and March 2020. This was before the first UK-wide lockdown due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Therefore, these statistics do not yet tell us anything about the impact of the pandemic on poverty and income inequality.

The report is available on the poverty website.
